It’s not only the women that need to be well put together at all times, and there is frankly no excuse for men to step out of the house looking like they lost their hair products. No excuses for dads, bachelors, and teens alike—grooming matters, and it's never too late for men to start taking care of themselves. We know it's a big, overwhelming world full of products and techniques, so why not help the guys in your life with three easy solutions for scalp, lips, and face?
The Beer Rinse
The six-pack in the fridge doubles as a shiny hair treatment! A beer rinse is one of the easiest ways to reinvigorate dull, lifeless locks.
Ingredients: 1 can of beer, room temperature (any brand will do)
Directions: After cleansing your hair with shampoo, pour the room temperature beer over wet locks. Massage the brew into your scalp for a few minutes, then rinse and condition.
The Mint Lip Balm
Sticky, tacky lip products are not a man's best friend. But a moisturized, minty-fresh mouth will do the trick.
Ingredients: 1 Tablespoon beeswax, 1 Tablespoon shea butter, 2 Tablespoons sweet almond oil, 10 drops of peppermint oil
Directions: In a double boiler or heat-safe bowl, melt the beeswax, shea butter, and almond oil together. Once they liquify, remove the ingredients from the heat. Add the peppermint oil, and then pour into empty metal tins. Let the balm cool completely, and enjoy!
The Foodie Face Mask
The way to a man's heart is through his skin. Try this simple face mask for a complexion treatment that's okay to snack on.
Ingredients: 1 banana, very ripe, 1 Tablespoon honey, 1 Tablespoon orange or lemon juice.
Optional: Almond meal or raw oatmeal
Directions: Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and apply a thick layer onto your skin. Massage for one or two minutes, and then let the mixture sit on your face for 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
